A large historical pub that is reputed to be one of the oldest pubs in Newcastle, dating back to the 16th century (1582).

It was formerly a coaching inn and retains its original low ceiling and wooden beams.

The pub is split on three levels with a smart lounge and dining area upstairs with comfortable seating.

The main part of the pub has a long narrow bar with another smaller bar to the side. It also has plenty of seating with tables and chairs, and a large open fire near the main entrance.

The lower level has a small bar with wooden tables and chairs and wooden panelling on the walls.

Free function room upstairs for parties.

Very lively at weekends with a DJ a regular feature, quieter during the week.
